  1. I've just been offered a 7 day trial period. Here's the funny thing. It happened on the day I set up my new phone so I'll still won't be able to tell the difference 🙂

    In any case I still suspect the "Templates" element of the note body to be the main offender in slowing down the new note readiness.

    Your experience mirrors mine (on a manually installed APK), but I did get notified of updates on the Play Store eventually. I received the June 26 update a day or two after release, for example. I believe that publishers on Google Play can roll out in stages or with delays, and some people get the update later than others. That said, I'm surprised you don't see anything after June 5, as there were a couple of releases since then. Perhaps try clearing your Play Store cache and restart your phone. I've had glitches in the past where many updates showed up after performing those steps.


    Tried that. Still nothing on 28.06 so I updated manually from apkmirror.

  3. @gazumped Your reply surprises me. I've been using the living hell out of Evernote for Android with inherent connectivity problems on my phone (2 GB of RAM, Android 7). Affected were Both, mobile data and WiFi. Even with an insidious bug where lack of connectivity wouldn't be reported to the device (all indicators keep showing connection present). And with that junk of a phone I've never experienced an issue with data loss or note lockout. The app stores a new note perfectly safe for however long it needs until connectivity is restored. He'll, it will do so even through a phone reboot.

    The only note loss possible is with using the Evernote widget. Which is a real trap, frankly speaking.


    While we're at it, let me remind that Evernote web (at least the old one) is almost guaranteed to delete a note or partially delete note information when on quirky connection. Which also should NOT happen. But it does.

    I wanted to give everybody here some information, rather than leave you all in the dark. The new web client does not support Firefox due to the note editor code utilizing WebKit, the rendering code used in most major browsers (Chrome, Safari, Opera,...). Firefox continues to use Gecko. The result is that a lot of the functionality built into our updated editor, which is used by the new web client and all our other clients, does not work well on Firefox.

    Just noticed it. Few important words of clarification, especially intended for general public not familiar with web technologies:

    1. The part about Gecko may make it look like Gecko is some technological cruft that Firefox intends to rely on. Firefox is well in the process of replacing vital parts of under-the-hood components with Servo, a very modern and efficient system, under the Quantum project.

    2. It was the Evernote's choice to rely on Google's WebKit, locking non-WebKit browsers (browsers not based on Chrome, essentially).

    3. WebKit adoption is part of the "slow boiling the frog" process that hurts internet users in the long run. See the sources.

    There are no error messages because Evernote defaults to the (very) old web interface when using Firefox. Open Evernote in Chrome and check out the difference: it's leagues better and we've been stuck waiting on it for 9+ months. 

    FUUUUU! :D How did I miss that?! I'm going to install Opera. It's based on Chromium intrails.

    When weeding my note collection for oversized attachments, I sort by size  and review the large notes. 

    >>looking at a wall of images.

    I layout images by using a table.  The picture size is restricted to the cell dimensions 

    - I do so as well.

    - Thanks for that tip with tables. Altough I create most of my notes on Android where tables are not available I might reorganize some of my biggest "galleries" on the desktop.

    Ok, I've clipped a lot of screenshots and have never noticed the size, or really cared but I now see that you have a basic subscription so you are bumping up against the monthly limit.  There is another solution to that problem ... 😎

    I'm nowhere near the monthly limit."Pointlessly" is the key aspect here. I don't like pointless things and I'm an expert when it comes to image formats :)

    Second, we are not yet at the point where there's no difference between kilobytes and megabytes.

    Third, with the recent Evernote update hiatusES I'm preparing for the future ones. Cutting the note syncing time by half is going to ease the involved stress a bit.

  8. [SOLVED] Can't be done.


    Is there a way to do it? I'm hunting down pointlessly large PNG files within my notes. I can find all notes containing PNG files using the


    search and nicely sort the results by size but once I open a note I'm looking at a wall of images.


    The situation also proves "I'll grab it quickly with Firefox scrrenshot feature and convert it to jpg later" to be a bad idea. One more thing. I've noticed that Created Date and Updated Date are editable. This is awesome! Cleaning up old notes won't make them flood the tops of my "Updated date" sorted notebooks!

    Just send you another post in another thread.

    If your subscription status is as it shows (BASIC = not paying), you are on a free ride, and this is it. If you get support, depends on the company policy of EN, and the rest on us users who are in the forum.

    You're just repeating what I knew all along. The web page *does* *not* provide a *clear information* on support access. Period. It's a usability issue, nothing else.

    Yes, it is there - but for paying users only ! Since you are on a free ride, EN restricts the access to company resources like support. If this is good marketing is another question ...

    I've already send you the address https://twitter.com/evernotehelps in another thread.You may try it there.

    This is a guess. Not an information. It would have been an information only if e-mail support was the only support channel in existence as far as software products are concerned.

    I agree it could be easier to find.

    But going to the forum at least must do you some good 😉

    And basically EN lives of their paying users. So they focus their effort (including support) there. If this is good marketing is another question.

    Do they engage in a covert money-making? If I need a premium account to support a support ticket then %#$ say so! ;) Again, poor webpage design.
